How To Start Online Business With No Money

Start online business

Want to know how to start online business with no money?  It takes money to start a business, right?  That’s not always true.  How?  Read this.


The beginning

Let’s start from the beginning shall we?

The operative word here is the word start.  It’s certainly possible to start with no money but to say you will never have to spend money would be completely unrealistic.

For another perspective, read this Forbes article:  “How to Start a Business with No Money”.

Next, let’s examine the concept of online business.  That’s a very broad term.  It’s been romanticized and glorified Kyani and there are lots of people who dream of having a successful online business.

Do you have any idea what it is you want to do, not to mention how you’re going to do it?


Is it possible you’re fantasizing similar to when someone says they want to get married because in their mind it seems so wonderful?

I can pretty much guarantee that if you start an online business you will be married to it.  If you haven’t chosen the right partner (in this case the partner is the business) your marriage is not likely to succeed.

Am I knocking marriage or online business?


Both can be wonderful if approached properly and if you’re willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.

How willing are you to do whatever it takes?

You’ll need to keep your eye on the prize because it could be a long, difficult journey.

How much tenacity do you have?

Let’s examine how to start online business without money.

Online business

What do you know about online business and online marketing?

Are you starting without any sort of prior experience or is this not your first attempt?

Do you have some idea of what you want to do and where you’re going?

Whether you’re brand new or you’ve done this before, if you don’t know what you want to do and don’t know where you’re headed, how will you know when you get there and how will you know if you’re getting what you want?

If all you want is money and where you believe you’re heading is to make lots of money and be your own boss, stop right now and take time to be more specific.

Everyone wants that.  That’s what too many people believe is all they need when getting started.  That’s why so many people get frustrated and go nowhere.

Having a dream is great but the dream needs to have a plan of action complete with short term and long term goals.

If the goals are only financial goals, again, stop and be more specific.  Furthermore, how do you plan to achieve those goals?

Goals require planning.

A goal without a plan is just a dream.

Online business is not only attainable and achievable, it is here to stay and you can and will make a lot of money if you take the time to plan it properly and do it correctly.

There are in excess of a BILLION people online at any given time.  Many of them are looking for products and services.  Money is changing hands at a staggering rate.

You can get, have, and keep your fair share but if you’re not clear about what going after, you’re kidding yourself.


If you’re still reading, I hope you understand there is no magic formula.  There’s a lot of help available but the process starts with you.

What do you really want and what are you willing to do to get it?

That’s where this starts.  It costs no money.  It takes soul-searching and it may take time.  Going forward it will definitely take effort.

What interests you?

What are you good at?

No one can answer these questions for you.  It costs you no money to answer them.

An online business can be created based on nearly any concept or idea—your idea.

The difficult part may be finding out how to market your idea and be profitable.

Three things most people remember:

The reality is few people actually are any of these, although some may actually be.  On the other hand, being perceived as such is very important in the business world, whether online or offline.

Your biggest challenge and obstacle to success could be establishing yourself as one of them.

If you think you can be all three, go for it but I wouldn’t recommend it.

If you’re looking at ways to start without spending money, which do you think will provide your best chance?

More importantly, which one most closely applies to you?

For example, if what you do is considered a commodity and is very competitive, why would you even think of trying to be the first?

On the other hand, there might be an opportunity for you to do something within that particular niche that had never been done before or that is very different from what everyone else is doing?

How to

Do you already have a website?  If not, that would be at or near the top of the list of what you need for how to start an online business.

Who is or will be the designer of the site?  Who is or will manage it?

Will you or do you plan to pay someone to do these things or are you willing to take the time to learn to do it yourself?

What if you could learn to do these things without having to spend any money?

Would you like to learn how to build a website free?

You can you know.

Once you have a website, how will you reach people and who will you reach out to?

If you already know that, you can and should learn how to make money in affiliate marketing.  It’s a great way to start without spending any money.

What is your overall knowledge of internet marketing?

If you could get free internet marketing training how much would that help?

It’s available to you.


If you’re planning to succeed and thrive in an online business or any business, there comes a time when you will have to spend money.

How much are you willing to spend?

How do you know where and how is the best way to spend money?

Keep in mind it’s also possible to skip all the planning, time, and effort by paying someone to do everything for you.

You’re reading this because you want to know how to start online business with no money.

If that’s still what you want, it’s important to understand that when it comes time to spend money that you do so carefully.  You want to be sure to get the best bang for your buck.

Assuming you start without any money, how much are you willing to spend when it comes time?

Would you be able to set aside $47 per month to help you understand and learn how to do everything you’re going to need to do if you plan to have your online business succeed?

That is a realistic number.

What if you could start for $0 for 7 days and you don’t need a credit card nor do you need to provide any payment information?

What if it was only $19 for the first month after that?

That doesn’t mean it’s the only money you’ll need to spend.  There’s always more you can spend.  Doesn’t it help to be guided how, when, and where is best?

You can get that guidance for the costs described above from Wealthy Affiliate.

I’ve talked about how to start online business with no money and pointed out that the key is you can start with no money but it won’t always be that way.
